Racing This Saturday, April 17th - CANCELED!
PLEASE SHARE - Attention All Vintage Cars...
We would like to welcome Schneider's Market at the 5 Mile Point Plaza in Kirkwood as the sponsor of this Saturday's Vintage Car Open. Be sure to stop and see them for your ice and snacks prior to the racing this Saturday.
The Vintage Car Open is for all clubs and independent vintage racers. We have put this early season show together to give everyone a chance to get out and race before "club racing" begins.
We are breaking the racing into two groups Modified Vintage (1985 and newer cars) and Sportsman Vintage (1984 and older cars). If we get 5 Late Models we will give them there own division. Each division will see the winner receive a plaque and $100 courtesy of Schneider's Market. We will pay second and place third as well in features ($75 and $50). If we have a separate Late Model class we will pay the top three. If not, the top finisher will receive $100 and a plaque.
Each Vintage team will receive two free pit passes for this event. We welcome members from all clubs but memberships are not required to race in this Vintage Car Open.
Thank you to Schneider's Market at the 5 Mile Point Plaza for their involvement in this program and please be sure to support them. They are located right at the bottom of the hill on your way up to the speedway.
The full order of events are posted on our website and we will have much more out during the rest of the week. Please email us at [email protected] if you're team is planning on attending. This way we can have a list ready at the pit sign in to make the process quicker for you.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing all of the vintage teams this Saturday at Five Mile Point Speedway.

We have very good news for our pit participants for the 2021 racing season. We will be requiring a one-time $10 Pit Participant Card this season. Everyone must have this once and just present it weekly upon arrival. This will replace the $60 Membership that was sold in the past. The Pit Participant Card is required and only needs to be purchased one time only. Teams will no longer have to possess the pit membership card for season ending awards. With this, individuals will only be required to fill out the Covid-19 release form one a one time basis versus having to fill it out weekly like last season. We will not be requiring a $60 pit membership for awards eligibility. Having the Pit Participant Card and us having the contact tracing information will meet necessary requirements for pit entry required by NYS. This will also alleviate the long process for each team to enter the pit area in 2021. We will still be only selling pit passes at your vehicle. The pit booth will remain closed so teams can remain in their personal vehicle to fill out the needed paperwork each. The Covid Form and Pit Participant Form can be filled out ahead of time but must be signed at the speedway with a witness at any of the pre-season practices or race events.

Spring Championship Series Slated...
Five Mile Point Speedway will begin the 71st consecutive season of racing with a five-week Spring Championship Series at the speedway beginning on Saturday, April 3rd and culminating on Saturday, May 1st. The five-week series will mirror the highly competitive fall series that was hosted at the end of last year.
On Saturday, May 8th the speedway will host a chicken bbq awards outing for the teams that competed in the 2020 campaign as well as the Spring Championship Series. That evening will also see an open practice session for all of the classes gearing up for the regular season. A brand new regular season of racing will begin on Saturday, May 15th including weekly Sunoco Big Block/Small Block Modifieds. A brand new point season will begin on Saturday, May 15th for all of the weekly classes.
The 2021 Spring Championship Series will again see a late afternoon program for the small cars (600 Modifieds, All-Star/Junior Slingshots and FWD Four Cylinders) followed by an early evening card of racing that will include the 602 Crate Sportsman, Street Stocks, Factory Stocks and Futures Crate Sportsman.
spring series continued...
The season is slated to officially begin with two open practice days on Saturday, March 20th and Saturday, March 27th. The 71st Season Opening race will take place on Saturday, April 3rd with the Crate Sportsman running the Annual Cold Cracker for GRIT Sportsman. On Saturday, April 10th the All-Star and Junior Slingshots will compete in an Empire Series event for the classes which will serve as a huge show for those teams. Saturday, April 17th will be highlighted with a Vintage Car Open. The Spring Championship will be settled on Saturday, May 1st.
This upcoming week shows weather and temperatures expected to moderate in the Southern Tier. We fully expect to be hosting our practices on Saturday, March 20th and March 27th.

New "Futures" Crate Sportsman Announced.
The New Futures Crate Sportsman Class continues this Saturday, August 1st.
We recognize for a new team (and at one point everyone has been a new driver) the best way to improve is having time on the track. This Saturday we will continue the "Futures Sportsman Division". This is for any team that may be starting out or is even uncomfortable running with the speeds that the more experienced teams have on the track.
Every year we watch drivers quit because they don't have the time on the track to improve. That can be very frustrating for newcomers knowing they get waved off the track after only a few laps. This will allow anyone that wants to run in that class to do so. It will be low pressure and about helping you gain experience. The Futures Sportsman will get a heat race and 15 to 20 lap feature pending on car count. There will be a victory lane award and photo. We will pay the top three finishers $100, $50, $50.
We hope this encourages new teams because they are intimidated with the more experienced teams. We highly encourage some of our experienced teams to reach out to the "Futures Drivers" and offer them some setup tips. If you are an experienced team try to look back and remember how hard it was for you when you didn't know how your car would react to changes.
Thank you again to everyone that was on hand this past Saturday and we hope to see you all back this week. We do appreciate it.
